It is worth paying the 3.50 euro to visit the King Aragon steps and the bastion. The bastion had more to discover than at first glance.

The ctadel, from historical to current, is a fascinating place. The tours through the bastion and the stairs, as well as the "rudder" of Corsica and the old battlements are great. And then people live full full lives here, right on the citidel. Amazing. FYI .. save some money ... at least during the off season, you should be able... More

A visit to Bonafacio is a must during a holiday in Corsica. It is spectacular, steeped in history, beautiful, and one of the great sights of Europe. Take the boat trip for an alternative perspective of the town. See where Napoleon lived. Enjoy the unique atmosphere of this fantastic place.

Bonifacio is an amazing city, with happy people and without the rush of big cities. It is impressive to see how the buildings remain in those cliffs. The sea has a dazzling color. It is a place that gives us the will to live.

The most remarkable element into Bonifacio panorama is certainly it's vast citadel hung to the rock of the cliffs. Keeping a watchful eye on Sardinia, i'ts an impresive and imposive architectural pearl, where many historical styles are mixed. Plenty of activities and attractions are waiting for you inside the fortress. You can join it by walk (thanks to a huge... More

Its difficult to put in words just how stunning Bonifacio and the Citadel is. All I can say is just go, take your camera and be prepared to be wowed! Take comfy shoes though, there is a steep hill to climb to get to the top.

Highly recommend this trip - well worth the coach & boat trip across from Sardinia to Corsica. Take your camera and be prepared to walk alot. Some lovely restaurants - lots to choose from! See how the other half live with the mega yachts moored up. Walk round the citadel and learn its history and marvel at the fabulous views!

well preserved and extremely well interpreted. Not busy which is a delight in a town which is stuffed with tourists shambling around! And it leaves you time to really absorb the fascinating history of this part of corsica. And a beautiful small garden of native plants. All for €3!!
